A sophisticated nautical print with superb wrapping qualities has arrived!
The detailed sailboats of varying sizes in the Newport design create a grippy quilted texture to this dense yet medium-in-hand woven wrap. The cotton patches are soft and smooth, and the Eco2 patches grab and hold for excellent support. The wrap is moldable in wrapping passes as well as easy on your shoulders.
Eco2cotton® yarn is made of recycled cotton products -- think of the cuttings that would otherwise fall to the floor at a t-shirt factory. What a fabulous idea! It is undyed after it is spun into yarn, creating no new pollutants and using no more water to make. Yet it retains its own special mix of colors from the dyes that were in its source fabrics.
The ecru cotton warp of Newport Shoreline provides a sturdy base for the lovely Eco2cotton® recycled weft. A small percentage of polyester (which comes in part from the poly threads in the garment scraps) contributes good diagonal stretch as well as softness without much breaking in. At 325 gsm, this is a thick, sturdy wrap that does not sag with big babes and toddlers. This wrap runs short compared to standard sizing.
Newport Shoreline ships prewashed/finished, not in loom state, so it is ready to snuggle upon arrival!
